How does Calcium Lactate Powder support healthy bones and teeth?
Calcium and magnesium are of critical importance to human health, especially bone health.1,2 Bones and teeth contain 99 percent of the calcium found in the human body, while bones alone contain 50-60 percent of the magnesium present in the body.3,4 Both calcium and magnesium are essential in the maintenance of bone structure and body-wide function.5,6,7 It is especially important to get the recommended amount of calcium in the diet to support and maintain healthy bone structure.8*
How does calcium support optimal health?
Calcium is necessary for the proper functioning of various white blood cells. Calcium is essential for many functions, including blood coagulation, vasoconstriction, and vasodilation.9 This important mineral also assists with nerve-impulse transmission, muscle contraction, hormone secretion, cell signaling, and proper functioning of many enzyme reactions.10,11*
How does magnesium support optimal health?
Magnesium is essential for more than 300 enzymatic reactions in the body.12 Magnesium in the cell acts as a counter-ion for energy-rich adenosine triphosphate (ATP), is a cofactor in over 300 enzymatic reactions, and stabilizes many enzymes, including those involved in generation of ATP.13,14 ATP is needed to produce the energy required for metabolic processes throughout the body. Magnesium supports DNA synthesis, the synthesis of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione, and the transport of ionizable calcium and potassium across cell membranes.*
Whole Food Nutrient Solutions
Since 1929, Standard Process has been the visionary leader in whole food nutrient solutions. We apply systems thinking to holistic nutrition that empowers practitioners to transform lives. Dedicated to the whole food philosophy of our founder, Dr. Royal Lee, our goal is to carry on his mission to provide nutrients for the body that are as close as possible to how they are found in nature.
Our products include foods that are prepared in a way that safeguards their nutritional value. The majority of these ingredients are grown locally on our certified organic farm and may require chopping, dicing, juicing, and/or drying for use in our products. The resulting whole food ingredients are then added to a formula that may include whole food extracts, animal tissue extracts and concentrates, botanicals, whole food isolates, and synthetic ingredients. These highly complex combinations contain a variety of elements designed to trigger trophic effects that support the body’s healthy balance and wellness.*
